According to a recent password report by Specops Software, passwords remain the primary authentication method for 88% of organizations.
Half of organizations scanned for compromised passwords more than once a month. The report found that passwords with 13-character minimums were found to dramatically lower risk from reuse. However, 31.1 million breached passwords had over 16 characters.
According to the report, 40,000 admin portal accounts were found to be using ‘admin’ as a password. Keyboard walks such as ‘qwerty’ are weak passwords used by millions of end users.
